BIG NOPE: Worship band's new song literally worships George Floyd
NOPE NOPE NOPETY NOPE.
A worship band called "The Porter's Gate," which describes itself as "a sacred ecumenical arts collective reimagining and recreating worship that welcomes, reflects and impacts both the community and the church," is releasing a new song that straight up worships George Floyd.
The song is essentially a remix of 17th-century hymn "O Sacred Head, Now Wounded." It's called "O Sacred Neck, Now Wounded."
I'm not going to link to the actual song because it doesn't come out until Friday and that would be mean. I will tell you though that it has the same melody as the old hymn. Major difference being the old hymn worshiped Jesus while the new one worships George Floyd.
I will show you the lyrics, though. LOOK AT THE STINKING LYRICS:
Yes, the second verse appears to be about Jesus. But the first verse and the third verse are about "Sacred" George Floyd. The lyrics are sung TO him. They even capitalize "Your" when referring to him 😑
Say it with me now:
This blasphemous song is from an album called "LAMENT SONGS" which comes out on Friday.
